Interactions, Mapping Nunhead and Indy Doc Musical ‘I am not a village’
Lucy F Thane
Lucy Thane is a Dancer with a Camera. Coming
from the Film industry and as a documentary filmmaker in London, NYC and San
Francisco, she facilitated production based training at Artists
Television Access in the Mission district of
San Francisco and Sidecar in Hackney, London.
For the past 15 years she has practiced &
trained extensively in live performance, improvisation and dance, and exhibited
nationally and internationally in both her own
and other Artists’ work. She has a Masters in Performance and creative research
from Roehampton university. Her current work, as director and performer, is a
feature length Independent documentary Musical “I am not a Village
Since over a year the Green has helped independent dance artist to
deepen their practice through support in kind. By helping out with studio space
that is otherwise left over, Exit Map, an organization brought to life by Laura
Doehler, facilitates Shared Practice; a
format for dancers and dance makers to use this space for training and creative
practice. This evening features some of their work which could not have been
realised without the support of The Green and likewise, the Open Day is our
return of favour to support the centre in its mission to be at the centre of
its community. Open Day has been our initiative and our way to say Thank You
Very Much – and the mutual gesture to give in order to support is what we
believe in as the way forward, as a way of being together.
Agnes Bakucz Canario
… is a movement artist based in Peckham. Their work is collaborative
and merges movement across disciplines, in search for tenderness and meaning in
everyday matters like relationships to money, digitality, institutions,
borders, and water. ‘Classical Waters’ references mythology (the figure of the
mermaid, the Kelpie, and the whale) with decorative infrastructures around
water (fountains, baths and swimming pools). Alongside Thelma Sharma, the
performer, Agnes has explored these ‘objects’ as sites/structures of human
desire, longing, and nostalgia for the unknown, the subconscious and a public
vs. intimate relationship to sensuality/sexuality.
… dance artist, teacher, performer, maker –
works mainly in London, based in Ladywell, the other side of the cemetery, as
well as internationally. There are many kinds of work dance artists do but the
ones I describe as current and significant to my vision, are my work as
movement teacher in HE at NCCA and as Contact Improvisation teacher, my own
movement research I undertake by myself via The Shared Practice at The Green
and in conjunction with other dance or performance artists such as h2dance,
Tara D’Arquian, Maria Zemlinsky and Cleo Lagrait. This work I am presenting has
been a journey and it’s become a puzzle; Nothing
I do is a solo about how we engage, configuring a way of being by
attempting a closure on generating, a closure on should, could and would. It
touches on ‘not enough’ and ‘trying too hard’ and ‘fitting in’.
Adult Contemporary Dance Students
This group is made up of people who wanted to dance and dared. Every
Wed at Siobhan Davies Studios a creative contemporary dance class happens with
an half hour extension that are practical choreographic inquiries. This is the
first public sharing of some things we touched on. It is a sharing, nothing
that ever was rehearsed but experienced and enjoyed. We would like to share the
simplicity and power of wanting to dance and hope it reaches out to all those
who would love to dance. The idea is not that we all can dance but that we all
do dance; either in a mundane and functional way or with a creative spirit
attached that claims freedom and transformation.
Tania Soubry Brave
Until October I am undertaking a research project, which at the moment
is mainly in the lecture and writing phase. The research examines the rave
movement in relation to the rise of neoliberalism. A core question and desire
of the project is to reflect and envision a new social and environmental myth
for humanity, storytelling through voices and music, affecting our being
towards an altered perception of ourselves. As I already had a showing within
this research, in the atelier of a former steel-factory, I share with you part
of that work in an updated form.
… there is tea and coffee, nibbles and games and plenty of space to
get moving, make stuff – from knitting to drawing to sawing – to bring life
into where you live by getting to know who you live with. Nunhead offers so
much and the Green has plenty to share and accommodate and this is our day to
say ‘Look what we have for you’ and ask ‘Anything else we can do?’
Come in, enjoy and speak to us!
